I was gone some last week and didn’t plan a menu, and I felt slightly disorganized at meal time! Funny how I’ve come to depend on this for meals each week. I think it’s always good to have a plan even if some meals get pushed aside for other things that come up. So I’m planning a menu this week but hubby might have some business meetings at night and if he doesn’t eat here, I probably won’t cook just for me! I’m happy with fruit or yogurt or cereal or something. But I’ll have a plan for the nights that I do cook. So what are you having this week?

Monday……….Baked salmon, smashed potatoes, veggies
Tuesday………Quick vegetable & rice soup, bread…..found this recipe in the newspaper & it’s a new one for me, uses sausage & I’ll use turkey sausage
Wednesday… supper
Thursday……..Shrimp & wild rice casserole, corn on cob (another new one)
Friday………….Chicken pot pie, salad
weekend……….if any of these meals get put off I might do them this weekend or maybe mini meat loaves if all these get cooked during the week!

Thanks Laura for hosting this each week; hop on over to her site for more menu ideas or hopefully to play along with us.

I’m off to work on pictures to post from our recent ski trip, been putting it off long enough! I hope to have them up Monday morning sometime.

    Yum, that all sounds good and I can’t wait to hear about the new ones. I think I might have cut out that soup recipe, or maybe another one. I don’t do much rice, although I love it, because you-know-who likes potatoes and not rice. 🙂

  7. JennaG Says:

    My vote is for the chicken pot pie as well–yummy! Have a great week.

    I admire all of you who make a menu plan at all, Gail. I’ve never been able to do it. I always have a general idea what I’m going to cook in a week, but no real plan – just play it by ear.

  9. Laura Says:

    I couldn’t agree with you more about having a plan even if that plan gets changed. That is why I don’t menu plan for the weekend, this way if something doesn’t go during the week I can make it on the weekend and don’t have to worry about any of the groceries I bought being wasted.

    Have a great week!
